I am going bonkers with this one - especially as there is no UK support helpline!
Equipment: Linksys Wireless-G ADSL Home Gateway WAG354G
Problem: I set it up but when I type 192.168.1.1 in my browser it does not see the router - just comes up with page not found errors. IPCONFIG tells me the IP address is 169.254.47.27 This gives me a Local Area Connection 2 icon by the clock, but with a yellow triangle and exclaimation mark.
Forcing the IP address to 192.168.1.1 (I think that is what I am doing by tweaking) gets rid of the Local Area Connection 2 icon by the clock, and makes the LAC2 in 'my connections' say it is connected.
This is all very confusing to me and I am at a complete loss. I therefore appeal to the wifi experts for your fantastic knowledge please? Thanks, Stu.
To clarify, I have the router plugged to the PC by a yellow ethernet cable. The router is powered up and the adsl light comes on when I plug in the phone line cable.
I progress with the setup disk, putting in all the settings it asks for, and then just before I get to complete section 12 by saving all the settings it says "unable to connect to the router, check the cable connection from the computer to the router. Contact Linksys technical support for further assistance".
